Mazda CX-3 Review 2015 (MY 2016)

compact SUVs Are The Hottest Thing On Four Wheels At The Moment And While There Are A Number Of Exciting New Models Launching In 2015 None Are More Highly Anticipated Than This The Mazda Cx-3 The Cx-3 Is The Fifth Model In Mazdas Range To Use The Kodo Design Language Which Is What Mazda Says Is A Way Of Expressing The Car's Soul And Dynamism Through Its Lines You've Got The Blacked-out Skirt Arches Side And Floating Rear Roof On The Car Which All Results In A Really Smart And Attractive Little Package Which Works Well In All Eight Colors Of The Cx-3 Range Particularly Our Test Cars Dynamic Blue Mica Paint The Cx-3 Is A Little Bit Longer Than The Mazda 2 On Which It's Based In Fact It's It's Roughly Halfway Between The Two And The Mazda 3 It's Bigger Brother It Is Taller Than Both Of Those However At 1.5 Meters Which Does Give You That All-important High Riding Position, But It's Not. So, Tall That Say Storing A Bike On Top With Optional Roof Racks Is Not An Impossible Task Now Being A Sports Utility Vehicle Practicality Is The Name Of The Game Back Here There's A 264 Litre Boot Which Doesn't Sound Like Much And Can Actually Fill Up Quite Quickly And You Put Something Like A Small Backpack Inside, But This Is A Compact SUV.

So, Overall Size Is Not What It's About It's Actually Quite Configurable Back Here The Boot Floor Can Raise Up Giving A Secure Area Below Which Is Actually A Handy Place To Store The Rear Parcel Shelf When It's Not In Use For Example, If You're Carrying A Pet Moreover It Gives You A Flat Load Floor Allowing You To Fold Down The 60/40 Rear Seat Giving A Total Cargo Volume Of 1174 Litres Not Bad For A Car Of This Size Now Before We Go Too Much Further Let's Call It Out The Cx-3 Is Not Really A Family Car We've Put In A Standard Sized Booster Seat Here And As You Can See With The Driver Seat In This Position There's Not A Lot Of Legroom For The Child In The Seat For Occasional Use There Are Two. ISOFIX Anchor Points And Three Separate Tie-downs, But, If You Don't Need To Worry About This It's Not That Bad Now. I'm 6 Foot 3 And.

I've Got A Reasonable Amount Of Headroom And My Toes Are Very Comfortable Given The Slightly Higher Riding Position Of The Cx-3 Where It Is Tight However Is On My Knees With The Driver Seat Set In My Position Thing Is Though It's Actually Quite Soft. So, It's Not Really That Bad You've Got A Matte Pocket Only On The Passenger Side Bottle Holders In The Doors, But There Is No Center Armrest Which Means It Can Get A Little Fidgety Back Here And Forget About Fitting Three Adults Wide In The Back There Are Also In Typical Master Fashion No Rear Air Vents Up Front There's A Really Pleasant Driving Position Now A Vision Out Of The Cx-3 Is Actually Pretty Good Despite The Sweeping Glasshouse Of The Rear The Cx-3 Has A Really High Level Of Quality About It That Just Doesn't Happen In A Lot Of Cars In This Class There Is A Mix Of Materials, But Even Some Of The Harder Stuff Feels Really Nice The Seats Aren't Terribly Supportive, But They Are Very Comfortable In This S Touring Model Second Top Of The Range It's Still Manually Adjustable, But You Do Have Height Control On The Driver Side Now All Grades Of The Cx-3 Except For The Entry-level Neo Received Masters 7-inch Mzd Touchscreen Which Is Paired To A Rotary Controller Down Here On The Console And Provides Navigation Audio Including Internet Applications And A Reverse Camera This Alone Lifts The Quality Feel Of The Car Now There's Storage In The Glovebox A Handy Place To Put Your Phone Right Next To The USB Charge Points In Front Of The Gear Shifter Again The Bottle Holders In The Doors Twin Cupholders In The Console And Of Course A Sunglasses Holder In The S Touring Model There Are Four Model Grades Of The Cx-3 - Transmission Options - Driveline Options Of Both All-wheel Drive And Front-wheel Drive And Two Engines A 1.5 Liter Turbo Diesel And A 2 Liter Petrol Engine That We're In Today The 2 Litre Petrol Has 109 Kilowatts And 192 Newton Meters Which Is Pokey Enough For Most Of Your Around Town Driving Put Your Foot Down However McCann's Sound A Little Raspy Today Around A Solely Urban Loop We've Been Sitting Under Eight Liters Per Hundred In The Petrol As There Has Copped A Fair Amount Of Criticism About Road Noise In Cars Like The New Mazda3 And Well We're On Some Pretty Standard Urban Roads And While You Can Hear The Tires We've Got The Aircon And The Radio Off It's Actually Not That Loud At All Now Our S Touring Model Is Riding On The Biggest Wheels Available 18 Inches And The Ride Well It Certainly Puts The Sport Back Into SUV Feels Reasonably Firm, But It Is Quite Direct Certainly Not Uncomfortable, If You Are After A Slightly More Plush Ride. I Would Suggest Going Back Down The Range And Sticking With The 16 Inch Wheels On The NIR And The Max We Haven't Exactly Done A Track Day In The Cx-3 Today, But Certainly Around Town Where We Have Been In Dealing With Traffic And Parking And Pretty Standard Roads That Turns In Very Well It Feels Nice And Light And Overall Is Quite Nippy To Get Around It Which Is Really What You Want In A Car Like This For This Market A 1030 Dollar Safety Pack Is Available As An Option Across The Range Except In The Top Spec Where It Is Standard Now This Gives You Blind Spot Detection Rear Cross-traffic Alert Which Is Great For Reversing Out Of Driveways And Of Course City Braking Which Will Automatically Stop The Car, If The Car In Front Of You Stops Suddenly Also Included On Our Astoria Model Is A Flip Up Heads-up Display With The Compact SUV Category Still Seeing Strong Sales Growth This Is The Type Of Car Buyers Are Looking For Master Have Set A Target Of Around A Thousand Six 3s A Month And Well Looking At The Day We've Had At Some Of The Responses We've Had From People Coming Past We Actually Wouldn't Be Surprised, If The Cx-3 Leads To The Head Of The Pack You.
